“Fantastic ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

This wasy favourite excursion.Mainly due to the boat ride through the most stunning parts of the nile and actually getting to swim in it. Wasn't really a fan of how they keep 4 crocs in a tiny cage,suppose that was the only tiny let down

“See Nubian life close-up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

There is nothing better than a slow motor-boat/felucca ride south of Aswan to the Nubian village and especially if done as the sun is setting. Many wonderful, locally made souvenirs to bring back and very friendly local people to meet. There's also one of the few 'safe' Nile beaches just before you get there so you can actually make it a day-out.

“Nice if you have time to spare”

If you have some spare time and if it's not too hot nice too see how they keep crocodiles in their houses as pets :)

“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

great to arrive there just before sunset as the lights go on in the small houses and the whole world twinkles. Not much to do once you're there- can't really say we enjoy looking at crocs in people's houses- but there are a few vendors with the usual glasswork, scarves etc. Go by felucca- great experience!

“Overall, a fantastic adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

The Nubian village portion of this trip is short and somewhat interesting. The shops are similar to others we would see in the city. The only difference is the more intimate setting of a functioning village. This may seem somewhat staged for visitors but there is no way you could visit a real village! The trip to the village was by fuluka and then camel and the ride back by small boat. These all combine to make it a very pleasant adventure. Highly recommended.
